AXD Detwiler came also, wearing a smile that approached the proportions of a grin. The joke, perhaps, is on San Francisco. The wanderer has recovered from his "nervous prostration"' and the roll may be called, for the * only known sufferer from this malady still missing is the extravagant and erring Doctor Cook. Mr. Detwiler grins impudently in the face of justice and has begun "issuing stater raents.*' He comes to be purged of his sins and washed white as snow. He courts investigation and feels confident of "vindication.'' He resorts to the miraculous cleansing property of due process Nobody in San Francisco doubts the facts underlying the indictment of Mr. Detwiler. Nobody in San Francisco expects to see him convicted of that crime. It may be that Mr. Detwiler's grin is justified by the facts of the situation, but San Francisco can not be expected to laugh at the joke. The city may be forgiven if. in contemplation of the situation created by Mr. Detwiler's sur render, its sense of humor appears imperfect. Notwithstanding his prolonged absence in foreign parts "for his health," it can not be said that Mr. Detwiler is welcome in San Francisco. It may be that after, the mysterious alchemy of the law has got in its work he will be permitted to leave the court without a stain on his character, but whatever the result, San Francisco will not have changed its opinion of the nature of his operations. Yet, if nothing else has been accomplished, it is certain that Detwiler and his like have been made exceedingly uncomfortable for a spell and the inducements to follow his example have been Mr. Detwiler Wears a Grin SENATOR RAYXER of Maryland invites the insurgent repub licans to join the democratic party, but Senator Dolliver of lowa, speakinjr for the progressives on his side of the senate, refuses the invitation on grounds which will doubtless -be regarded as valid. Mr. Dolliver has small faith in the democracy and points out that the party is quite as radically split on the great issues as are the republicans themselves. In reply to Senator Rayner he said, speaking for the republican party: It is a large party, and it has within the last fifteen years converted a iargc number of good people to its faith. It is large enough and good enough to carry on the fight for good government, but if I ever di 4 feel any temptation to leave it I would have to look over a good many things l»efore I would pitch my tent toward the democratic party, because I know that there is quite as much discontent in the^ democratic party as to its leadership as in the republican party.- It is a fact of record that when Senator Aldrich wanted votes to carry an extravagant schedule in the tariff, designed to fatten greedy interests, he could always rely on a sufficient number of democratic votes to make his point. The only really aggressive and earnest force in American politics today is found among the ranks of the republican insurgents. There are honest and sincere men on the democratic side, but they are not aggressive and are not leaders. It is a plain fact of the situation that in the present congress all initiative for reform legislation has come from the insurgents. This explains why in recent years so many conscientious democrats have joined the republican party. So numerous are these that they have come to be described as "Roosevelt democrats." Insurgents Refuse an Invitation TH E National conservation association, Gifford Pinchot president, ii-js issued a warning against the bills introduced in congress by Representatives Smith and Englebright, both of California. Mr. Smith's bill has virtually the same purpose as that introduced by Smoot in the senateN AH these bills are intended to facilitate the seizure and appropriation* of water power sites now ________________ held in the public domain. We quote: Senate bill 7432. introduced on March 28, by Senator Sraoot of Utah, and now pending before the senate committee on public lands, would grant to the states all waterpower sites now in federal owner >hip. Its main purpose is the transfer to western states of all powers and responsibilities' of the national government with respect to water power development on lands owned by the nation. The bills introduced by Senator Carter of Montana (S. 5704), and Representative Smith of I California (H. R. 11932), have the same purpose. The bill introduced by Representative Englebright of California (H. FL 23556) would subject the lands of the United States to condemnation under state laws and thus destroy the federal ownership of power sites. These bills are backed by a powerful lobby financed by the power site grabbers. A curious feature of the agitation in favor of these propositions is that they claim the states already own the water and the water under the constitution. If that is true iviiy don't they assert their rights? The courts are open. The conservationists hold no purpose to keep these valuable v- ater rights out of use. They are perfectly willing that they should i <• leased under grants irrevocable for fifty years. The Power Site Grabbers at Work CONTROL of the Mexican oil market is the prize for which two gigantic financial interests are contending. It appears to be war to the knife, and no quarter. On one side is T Standard oil, operating under the name of the Waters-Pierce company, and on the other the great English contractor, Sir; Weetman Pear son, and the interests 'behind him. working __ ' under the name of Pearson & Co. . A year ago it was said that Pearson felt himself beaten and was ready to quit. Xow he is said to be fortified with a strong backing of Mexican capital, and the fight proceeds with renewed vigor. A dispatch from the City of Mexico describes the situation: 11. Clay Pierce has let it be known since his arrival here that he is to continue the fi**ht for control or the refined oil trade of ' Mexico to the . last ditch. He admits that his. company has lost several* million dollars since the war in prices was inaugurated, but he asserts that" -the'i Pearson , Wtcrests have lo"'- r «iuch, if not more, than his company. The Waters-/ War for Control of an Oil Market EDITORIAL PAGE Pierce oil company is greatly handicapped in its fight for the Mexican trade through not being an oil producer in this country. It is with the view of remedying this situation that it i's now seeking to acquire exten sive holdings which will be exploited and developed as rapidly as possible. It is at present importing most of its crude oil supply for its refinery at Tampico, although it is receiving a part of the oil output of the Mexican petroleum company's field at Ebano, near that port. " The Pearsons are very close to Diaz, so that they are certain to get fair play from- the government. This firtn, at the solicitation of Diaz, built the railroad across the isthmus of Tehuantepec and equipped the terminals with modern machinery for handling freight. This enterprise has resulted in enormous .benefit to San Erancisco and California because it created an important competitor, .with the overland railroads. Doubtless an understanding exists with the railroads and there is no cutthroat competition ; but, notwithstanding this, the Tehuantepec route is an important factor in the regulation of rates. It is a remarkable enterprise in this respect that it was undertaken in spite of its uncertain future in view of the "completion of the Panama canal. It is quite doubtful whether there will be any business worth considering for the Tehuantepec route after the canal is opened. CONGRESS is all tied up in knots over the administration bill for the regulation of railroads. The bill was given to con gress in the expectation that it could be jammed through unchanged and under pressure, but apparently this program has failed to work, successfully. The vital objection to Jthe bill raised by ; the insurgents is that it repeals the Sherman law against trusts as far as it applies to rail roaas, pernmung diem without check to form combinations in restraint of competition. It was pretended that the bill made pro vision requiring the consent and approval of the interstate com merce commission for agreements between railroads, before those agreements could go into effect, but this does not appear to be true. The only control given to the interstate commission would be the power to institute a tedious lawsuit to set aside the rates fixed by' agreement and pending the determination of this action the rates would continue in effect. If at the conclusion of the suit the rates were found to be unreasonable, the railroad companies could make another agreement slightly different .in character and the process of litigation would begin all over again. The only result of the bill would be to make conditions a little worse than they now are. This power to make combinations beyond control would put the industries of the whole country at the mercy of the railroads, as Senator Dolliver pointed out in these words : . To invite these men or their agents to parcel out the cities, towns , and villages of the country on a map and say to the industries of America under what terms they would be allowed to exist; to deny to the govern ment the right to step in and' stop proceedings with its peremptory order, would be to strike a blow not only at the shipping community, but at the industries which are the life of the country we represent and which we ought to protect. The bill was drawn by Attorney General Wickersham, of whomj Dolliver went on to say : The hand that wrote this original bill did not even pay the repub~ lican platform the poor tribute of a passing notice. The voice that now feels authorized by a little brief to purge the republican party of unworthy members, when this bill was written either did not know what the republican platform was or felt at liberty to treat it with that silent inattentiou which is the characteristic of really great minds. This bill is now urged as a fulfillment of republican pledges. It is nothing of the. sort, as we have endeavored to show, and no bill will be such fulfillment that does not give the interstate commerce commission the power to suspend' rates before they go into opera tion and pending inquiry as to whether they are reasonable or not. If this power is not created, the whole matter would better go over to another congress more in touch with the popular demands. Plain Truth About Railroad Regulation Bill UNUSUAL financial conditions created by the refusal in November of the house of lords to' pass the British budget nronosed by Lloyd George have, of course, resulted in chaos in the national treasury. The country was practically committed to a scheme fof taxation from whiclvi the most important items were omitted!

City. Why Is it tbat we nerer see but one side of the nioon? Astronomers give the following ex» planation: "The reason why the Inhab itants of the earth have never seen but one side of the moon is that it makes a revolution on its axis at the same time that it revolves around the earth, and so always presents the same face to us. The reasons for this peculiarity is the ellipitical form of the moon It self. It ia not probable that the moon started on its axial rotation with pre cisely the* same-velocity with which it moved around the earth, but. it is thought that the two motions were originally not ; very far apart and the fact that the attraction of the earth slightly elongated the lunar globe and served to draw the axial rotation in a period of time toward the orbital move ment around the earth. Now. there fore, they so nearly correspond that if the orbital movement varies the other will undoubtedly vary with it and thus the exact correspondence will be in definitely kept up." EASTEH-V.. K. G., Oakland. How is tqe ante of taster drtcrmined? Wny is It not on the same day each year? The data for Easter was fixed by a decision of the council of Nice, A. D. 325. It was decided that the first Sun day after the full' moon occurring on or after March 21 should be observed as Easter Sunday. If the first full moon after that dato should fall on a Sun day the Sunday, after should be ob served as Easter Sunday. This ar rangement was adopted because March 21 is very near the date of the vernal equinox and a tradition has existed that this equinox occurred immediately before the crucifixion. WASniXGTON— H.

Be» gins her triduan""reign. The her alds' trumpets call the court. Into the veins of every native and borrowed subject within -her gates, Santa Rosa infuses a subtle wine of life that adds royal lineage to the blood. Bar sinister there is none. AH "are to the purple born. Behold full 20,000 souls and every one a knight or lady of the court! Ah, matchless kingdom that grew so softly out of a budding rose! In the Santa Rosa lexicon festival has always meant the beauty, the per fume, the joy of flowers and fair wom en and a hospitality so full and simple that it knew no bounds at all. A rarer, fairer season few mortals ever knew than begins today in the city of the valley of the Sotoyomes. Other cities have their festivals, their carnivals, their frolics. But every ra diant fiesta based upon the unfolding of flowers muat turn to Santa Rosa for its norm. Santa Rosa is the mother of rose carnivals. It originated and It has never ceased to teach, to lead the way. Other cities, also famous for their bow ers and their gardens, might as easily have been first to make a holiday with a rose. The significant fact is that other cities did not see the opportunity. Santa Rosa did." On May 10, 1894, Santa Rosa held the first real rose carnival that California had known. The development of latent possibilities at that carnival amazed all the visitors. And most amazed of all Were the Santa Rosans themselves. It was truly the birth of the grand idea— an idea which has done so very, very much in spreading California's fame around the globe. Santa Rosa may not be inclined to count that first carnival, except as a beginning, be cause the carnival of the next year so far outshone it In size, in splendor, in all the tabulation defying elements that so enrapture the senses. It was plain enough that the men and women who do the real work of such affairs had never stopped their labors since the initial effort of 15 months before had- shown them in 1 a dim way what ; really might be done. At the conclu , sion of that second carnival Mayor Sutro turned to Mayor Edward F. Woodward and called him rightfully the proudest man In the world. Gov ernor Budd led dazzling Queen Isabel to her throne and used his disengaged arm in a sweeping je3ture as he said: "Two years ago.no such thing as this would have been attempted. Santa Rosa originated this kind of carnival last year. As she begins her second she finds half the cities of the state vying with each other to show the world in the way that she has shown them." I heard the words as they fell from his lips. . A wonderful show was that of May, 1595. Santa Rosa had chosen three colors for a draping that extended everywhere that the banks and garlands of roses would permit. Orange, olive and wine^-those were the tints. Some , body had even dyed a white bulldog in Gossip of Railwaymen AMOVING picture machine in action In Powell street yesterday after noon caught Charlie Miles of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.' Paul and Jules Clerfayt, who owns several At lantic steamship lines, in the act of tak ing the "never again" vow. Had it been known that the moving picture machine was in the neighbor hood and in action, both- -would have waited until they entered their offices. Miles, who keeps a close watch over Cterfayt, insisted that Jules take the oath. Jules raised his left hand high in the air and started to repeat after Miles, "Never again," when Billy Web ster of the Pennsylvania lines inter vened"~and made Clerfayt hold up the right hand. > The pictures will be exhibited at the Orpheum in a few weeks, and already the transportatlonmen are talking of a theater party 6o they can see Clerfayt taking the vow to "never again" at tend the matinees in.

Santa Rosa's private gardens yielded more floral treasures than even the gardeners supposed they contained. No streets were ever so bedecked. Little Princess Georgia Stewart crowned beautiful Isabel Don ovan quean, and on came the pageant led byMajor R. J. Pye, a grand mar shal who can never forget the honors of that day. Prof. Bud Parks, the lo cal Sousa. led not one but a dozen bands — andfor once the bands were not the biggest tblns In a parade. The floats were the forerunners of the flower floats that we have come to know today. They were copied from nothing; they were the first of their kind; they have been copied ever since. There wert> companies of military ca dets and brigades of national guards men, but for once gold braid looked tawdry and flashing trappings set not the feminine heart In wonted flutter. The floral devices of that pageant gay* a brand new joy to the world. Most imposing of all. in my memory at least, were the scores and scores of vehicles which deft handed women hail transformed with flowers into veritable chariots from fairy world, and t» which they lent the final charm of their oc cupancy. Our own Amos Riley -Hardin helped to scheme the wonders of that day as chairman of the carnival com mittee, though unfortunately no steed could be found which looked capable of carrying 350 pound 3, and the director general of It all was visibly represented in the pageant merely by a little child posing as a butterfly upon a float oC pink La France. _ Until the year of the great disaster the fame of tlie rose carnivals of Santa Rosa had' never been allowed to wane. Each year the spectators were given something new. In the disaster the splendid little city suffered more than people know. Her main business streets were lined with dignified structures of brick which went down in heaps be fore the earthquake. The ruin was awful to contemplate. It would have had the whole world talking but for the disaster in a larger city. There was no tire. Ergo there was no in surance money to boost the buildings back. Not all Santa Rosans are capi talists. The city lifted herself out of the pit by the fine aid of its own abil ities. A better city stands there now. You do not know what its conjuring cost when you look upon the pleasing facets of this gem among cities. Nor do they wish you to know. They are restored, and this is the year and the hour of their rejoicing. Tis rose time In Santa Rosa. Even the streets are a-bloom.
